Please note this is a 10 week course with a one week half term break.
Tap is the original jazz dance and anyone, at any age, can start tapping. We are extremely fortunate to be able to offer the privilege of dancing each class to live piano music, providing the opportunity to develop a high degree of artistry, musicality, grace and power and supporting the creation of choreography. Tap or hard-sole shoes are required.
Advanced: A class for those with a good knowledge of tap (Grade 4 and above, as a guide only). A fast-paced, high-intensity tap class. In this class, we explore different time signatures, more complex rhythms and challenging sequences – as well as learning an exciting routine each term.
